Our Day Out

We've written before about the need to end the isolation that many disabled young people experience. Disabled young people are usually not seen in public - many seldom leave their compounds and, in Gunjur, only a very few have ever been out of their village. So we were delighted when the suggestion came from the volunteer play staff that they wanted to take the children out on a trip to Brikama - the local market town. The whole event was great fun - even the novelty of a minibus ride was a highlight (as with all the best trips out!). The kids had a picnic, saw around the market and to end the day, paid an impromptu visit to the Governor of the West Coast Region who welcomed them all into his office to hear about the great work of the Gunjur Inclusion Project.
